WDE Aug 15-Bucket Full Of Treasure

Thanks for those great refs, Oty!

I thought the beach scene with Christos was great! I wasn't overly cautious to get everything just right...I was after expressive looseness (actually, I was short of time tonight... ). I just kept adding notes of paint attempting to match the feel of the ref.

This is oil on a 7x5 canvas panel.

C&C welcome. Thanks for looking and commenting.

Done in approx 2 hrs.

Wow! I love the warm shadows and cool sun! You captured the feel of the day, I can almost feel the sand scrunching under my feet and hear him laughing. Wonderful body modeling. The photo had great shadows but you've punched up the color and given the scene a much more natural look, brought me out there in truth!

Re: WDE Aug 15-Bucket Full Of Treasure

wow, wonderful portrait of christos!!! i like every bit about it - the crop, the colors, the sea and waves (i can hear them and feel the wind), the sunlight and shadows work, the body in motion capture, the childish look...
thank you so much for joining!

Nicely done Dean. Love the splashy ocean in the background and the bright sunlight on the young man.

I don't think there is anything you can't paint and paint well, Dean. Beautifully done, as always!
